Garages are an important, but often overlooked, part of your property. They can add real value to your premises and provide a safe and secure storage space to store everything from your bike, to your tools, to your car.

Once you have one, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.

However, a garage can provide you with much more than just a space to park your car in the evening; here are some great uses for your garage and how you can adapt your garage to truly make it feel a part of your home.

Art Studio

If you are a keen artist, you could use your garage space to make a lovely home for your ever-increasing range of art supplies, and let’s not forget your easel. Having a separate room for your art is a good way to get into the right mindset and avoid any of those nuisance distractions.

For the energetic gym fanatics, or even just for the health conscious, a gym would be a great way to utilise a garage space. You could buy your own gym equipment, such as a treadmill, a cycling machine, and even a couple of weights, and build your own personal workout space from the bottom up.


Garages are a great way to isolate yourself from the rest of the world. With this, you can give yourself some peace and quiet from your busy life. If you work from home and would like to separate your home life from work, then converting your garage into your very own office is an ideal solution.

With easy access and added security, you can always ensure that you can foster yourself a unique area, just for you, in which you can concentrate. And while it may be still literally attached to your house, and allow you to work from home, it can feel like a whole different world – one in which you can benefit from your own personal space, while having all the home comforts on your doorstep!

Garages offer a great space that is attached to your house, meaning that you can use it for more than just storage. If you have the necessary equipment, you can fashion your garage into an extra bedroom, which would be great if you have family or friends that want to stay over.

Storage Facility

One of the most common uses for a garage, without a doubt, is for it to serve as a storage facility. If you tend to have a lot of items, then a garage can be a lifesaver. Equally, if you are a keen gardener, you can also use your garage as a storage facility for your garden tools; everything from trowels, shovels, and gardening gloves to lawn mowers, hedge trimmers, and potting equipment.

Garages are incredibly versatile – they can be used in so many different ways. We’ve listed a few, but the choice is yours with what you want to use your garage for.
